European bitcoin exchange Bitstamp has announced the launch of a unified pricing structure in preparation for the addition of Ethereum trading pairs. This comes after the exchange first starting to support Litecoin trading only in June.
Starting from Thursday, 17 August, Ethereum will be available for trading on Bitstamp against USD, EUR and BTC.
Nejc Kodrič, the CEO and co-founder of Bitstamp, commented: “Since Bitstamp was founded in 2011, our customers and trading community have been our main focus. We’re always strategizing ways to make our platform more easily accessible and the customer trading experience simpler and safer. Before the rollout of our new cost-effective unified pricing, we had nine different fee schedules (one for every single trading pair), but now there’s only one unified pricing model to worry about.
We went with this pricing model because of the new trading pairs we’ve added recently, as well as our plans to add even more. This includes Ethereum, which will be available for trading with USD, EUR and BTC starting August 17. We’re even offering deep discounts on Ethereum trading for customers through the end of the year. We’re excited to unveil these new updates and will continue looking for additional ways to improve the customer trading experience.”
